Anioł Dowgird (1776–1835) was a philosopher of Polish Enlightenment.

Dowgird studied in Jesuit and Piarist schools, then joined the Piarist Order and took holy orders. Subsequently, he taught at Piarist schools and for a time was a professor of logic and ethics at Wilno University.[1]

Dowgird derived his views from John Locke's empiricism, the Scottish School of Common Sense,[2] and Immanuel Kant's Critique of Pure Reason. But, unlike Kant, he ascribed to time and space a real existence independent of man.[1]

  • Rezczywistość poznań ludzkich (The Reality of Human Experience)[1]

He also wrote several sermons and left a manuscript treatise on Kant's philosophy.[1]
